2012 Heart & Hands Elaine’s Vineyard Finger Lakes Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., pH 3.66, TA 0.64, 96 cases, $32. Vineyard is located on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake. Yield 3.4 tons per acre. 100% whole cluster. Aged in 24% new Francois Frères French oak barrels. Unfined and unfiltered. · Light burnished red color in the glass. Vibrant aromas of fresh cherries, cola and rose petal. Very tasty mid weight flavors of cherry reduction sauce and red berry jam with a complimentary hint of spice. The tannins are well proportioned and the finish is joyous. Tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, the wine was still pumping out the lovely aromas and flavors indicating promising longevity. Score: 91.
